Grain-free Gluten-free "Bread"

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Apr 27, 2013 at 8:29am

I saw a recipe for this bread on the terrific blog Against All Grain. As I’ve noted before, I find eating even gluten-free grains inflammatory (and with a bigger carbohydrate punch than I can get away with, unless I want to gain weight and feel exhausted…). You could call this way of eating Paleo, but…

Savory French Toast with Mushrooms

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Dec 17, 2012 at 10:08am

I couldn’t eat much of anything this terrible, sad weekend, but as my desire to cook has slowly returned, I’m turning to comfort foods. I made pan-seared steaks with a dried-and-fresh-mushroom pan sauce and it was just really nice to serve John and Nathan one of their favorite meals. I made a good amount of…

Perfect Soft-Boiled Eggs

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jul 17, 2012 at 10:56am

When I was a little girl, I thought I’d really be a grown-up when I could eat soft-boiled eggs for breakfast, just like my dad. I was fascinated by the way he carefully tapped the top off with a knife, then sprinkled salt & pepper inside before scooping spoonfuls onto bites of seriously buttery toast…

Cinnamon Streusel Muffins

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 13, 2012 at 7:39pm

My son asked me this morning, “Hey, what’s that crumbly cinnamon stuff you put on top of muffins? Make that, like, all the time.” Streusel! Yes! We are a family obsessed with streusel. When I was a little girl, I asked my mom if she could make a whole pan of just streusel, skipping the…

Socca (Chickpea Flour Pancakes) with Fried Eggs & Spinach

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Dec 6, 2011 at 9:49pm

Somehow on my trip to Provence this summer I completely missed socca, or chickpea flour pancakes. I’m a little bit obsessed with them at the moment, hot off the griddle, topped with nothing more than a grind of black pepper. That’s how they’re served in Provence, as a snack, wrapped in paper, meant to be…

Dutch Apple Pancake

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 20, 2011 at 1:38pm

This pancake is meant to be served with a dusting of confectioners’ sugar, which is lovely, but I’ll be honest…a generous drizzle of Sapsucker Farms maple syrup, with a tidy pile of crispy bacon, is a very, incredibly awesome way to usher in fall. For my gluten-free friends, I did a little experiment using gluten-free,…

Crepes with Warm Blueberry Sauce

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Aug 9, 2011 at 10:42pm

I bought the loveliest local blueberries at the market last week, as plump and pretty as as my Grandma Meyer. I got them home, popped a handful in mouth because I’m greedy, and was shocked to discover…sour! Oh so sour! So I dumped them into a saucepan with some (not too much) sugar and turned…

The First Thing I Ever Cooked: Buttermilk Pancakes

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jun 14, 2010 at 11:44am

Shauna – aka Gluten-Free Girl – tweeted over the weekend about a fun project she thought up for today.  She invited food bloggers anywhere and everywhere to post about The First Thing They Ever Cooked.  When I saw her tweet, I smiled and sent myself a reminder email titled, “Buttermilk Pancakes!” (That’s what I do…
